Neil Armstrong: 1930-2012

Neil Armstrong; the first person to walk on a planet other than our own.  A Navy fighter pilot in the Korean War, an engineer, an astronaut, a professor, a father, a husband.  A man that every child of my generation watched in breathless wonder as he took those first steps on the moon, that hot July night in 1969.

He has inspired generations of children to dream beyond their horizons.  "Don't tell me the sky is the limit when there are footprints on the moon." - Paul Brandt

Godspeed, Neil Armstrong.


  1. He had set an example of courage and guts to take the first leap and put his step on moon that made him immortal .....

  2. The world is a little bit dimmed by the loss of his light, IMHO. I hope he soars in the stars that he loved. RIP Mr. Armstrong. You changed the world.

  3. Yes and yes, Shayari and Miranda. Thank you for your thoughtful comments.
